It might be a replay of last year’s Grand Final, but there could be nothing further from the Swans’ mind when they play the Doggies at the SCG.
This is the Swans’ season, make no mistake about it.
They win, they’re still a chance to play in the finals. They lose and it’s game over. End of story.
With that in mind you can suspect they’ll show some real fight but I can’t get the Hawthorn game out of my mind.
They were pretty ordinary and in particular some players showed less intestinal fortitude than I’ve seen in a long time at the SCG.
The mantra of the bloods culture is being seriously questioned so John Longmire has and will need to make some key decisions to ensure things get back to where they were.
On the flip side, the Doggies are full of courage and they just know how to fight, so for that reason it’s hard not to tip them.
Sydney’s home ground advantage is irrelevant when you’re playing a team who has only won once at home all year.
The players that all eyes will be on are Callum Mills and Sam Reid.
All high profile and two of them are coming off contract.
Forget Buddy, he always plays well, but if these guys can’t cut the mustard, watch for some changes.
Dogs to win by something beyond 20.
Sydney at $1.83
Western Bulldogs at $2.00
